Leclerc hopeful he can make up positions

Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc is hopeful he can make up positions during the 2021 F1 French Grand Prix after a poor qualifying performance.

Despite only qualifying in seventh place, Ferrari Formula 1 star Charles Leclerc is positive he can finish higher up the order during the 2021 French Grand Prix.

There is no getting around the fact that Leclerc had one of his worst qualifying performances in a Ferrari in quite some time with the Monegasque driver being comfortably outperformed by his teammate Carlos Sainz. Leclerc though is confident he can turn things around.

"I feel like there's definitely the potential to gain some positions tomorrow so that will be the goal," Leclerc told RacingNews365.com along with other select members of the media.

"I just struggled to drive around the the balance limitations which were the front for me today [qualifying] and Carlos just did a better job so congratulation to him.

"I think it's a good day for the team, sure it's a bit more backward compared to the last two races where we were on pole, but let's say to be more in line with what we expected."
